Leptospermum ‘Rhiannon’ – Tea Tree

 

A hardy small to medium upright shrub with brightly coloured flowers in spring and dark, glossy foliage. It is relatively narrow and therefore suitable for confined spaces such as driveways or can be used as a screen or feature plant. Flowers are good for floral work, pick in bud. Also great for bees and small insects and birds, as they are rich in nectar. Prune after flowering to encourage a more dense habit which gives more flowering next season.
